Andrea Calandra "Archetype"
The sixth release of Astrophone Records is the debut of Andrea Calandra with his “Archetype”, which includes a brilliant remix by Risico. The original mix is a melodic techno tune with an unceasing groove, running from the beginning to the end of the track. The intro gives into 808 sounds, preparing the ground for a great plot of pads and arps, and a little drop runs into the outro with a fresh and personal style. The remix represents the dark side of Risico: not so many housy and deep elements, but a groovy techno track taking some sounds from the original and linking them with solid rhythmic structure. December is the peak time, man!

Biography Astrophone Records
Astrophone Records is an Italian independent label born in 2016 as an artistic project by Raffaele D’Ascanio and Matteo Basso, founders of electronic duo Risico. The aim of the label is to connect themes such as the universe and spirituality with art, music and symbology. For this, Astrophone wants to create an innovative concept, both musically and graphically, allowing artists to express themselves and create their own imprint, without forgetting the trends on the electronic landscape. The label is open to both digital and vinyl releases, focussing on the research of innovative ways of recording with new instruments and formats. Although Astrophone’s attitude doesn’t fit into a particular musical genre, it is influenced by detroit techno, progressive house and acid house.
